I’m kind of in the same boat. I have a hot dog stand that I work daily…but I want to get another one going as well. Problem is, anyone that I think is competent to do a decent job…already has one. I’m not sure what anyone else thinks, but if you want a hot dog cart, why don’t you wait until you can get it going and see what the job entails before you look into hiring someone to do it. On the surface this is a pretty easy job. I’ve found that it is really time consuming and…a lot of work. If you had someone that you wanted to give a job too I could understand it (the neighbor kid that mowed your yard through high school, or a favorite nephew or something) but to put this much responsibility on someone you don’t know, without having the experience yourself to know the ins and outs of this trade…well, that sounds like too much brain damage to me. I know you want to do this thing…can you wait until your time constraints allow you to get into it? Or maybe get a cart and do just some select events that you have time for?
Dude, this is the funnest thing I’ve done in years. And I’m starting to make some decent cash. So I can dig you wanting to get into it, but…well, you know my opinion by now. Good luck man.
